POP/ROCK | Sports 

I've frequently toyed with the philosophy that every band should put out one album, then call it quits. Just think how many bands with killer debuts sort of petered out and undid their spontaneous cool on subsequent releases. Sports — Rochester's answer to sparkling pop-rock without too much sugar — is hanging it up after four years and one brilliant album. This band's songs are future classics and though I'll miss it's quirky organ-filled, Costello-inspired groove, I admire Sports for bailing while on top — that's not to say the bottom was closing in, I just think Sports has class. Vaya con Dios.

Sports will perform with Harmonica Lewinski, Afro Nips, Howlo, on Saturday, May 3, at Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. Show starts at 9 p.m. $5-$7.
